She added: "You have just been incredible in so many ways. Week 1 I dreaded the thought of dancing alone and I gripped onto you for dear life during our waltz but somehow by week 10 you managed to get me shaking and laughing on that ballroom floor when dancing by myself. You have helped to grow my confidence in so many different ways whilst also helping me discover things about myself I never knew and these are all things I'm going to remember for the rest of my life!! I have absolutely loved learning to dance with you we had the most fun."

The couple have become really good friends

Nikita was clearly lost for words after reading the post and simply commented with red heart emojis. However, he later took to his own Instagram and thanked Tilly for being "such a pure, joyful, beautiful soul" and the Ramsay family for "making me feel welcome and loved in your family".
